FAQ: What about other first responders?

Police Health has provided the very best private health insurance since 1935. Now covering over 60,000 members of the policing community across Australia. Police Health's focus on offering top cover in three easy-to understand polices saw a high demand from other first responders wanting the very best insurance. 

It was important for our members to keep Police Health just for the policing community, so a second health fund Emergency Services Health was established. 

Registered as its own fund, but part of the Police Health Group, if you have friends or family wanting only the best let them know they may be eligible to join the sister fund Emergency Service Health. eshealth.com.au
